This is a perfect place to enjoy a kickback day at the beach! Have a beer, get a glass of wine, order some light food, relax inside, or bask in the sun and breeze outside. A perfect spot is the couch near the open front...More

My husband and I just happened to cross this little gem! It sits right on a corner across from the beach. What's great about this place is that you can sit on the patio and watch all the people meander by. I had a delicious...More

Expensive drinks, and very slow service. We had to go up to the bar if we wanted to order, staff never came by our table or offered us a menu. I did not know they had food until the couple next to us got some....More

When my husband and I planned an extended weekend and Avila Beach recently, this was one of the spots he insisted we hit up, primarily because he saw a photo of their cheese plate on line. I must say, it did not disappoint. For about...More

A wonderful place to enjoy a glass of wine or beer on the pier. A must visit to relax. Light snacks and finger foods are just right for this establishment.

Pleased with the new ownership of this ocean view wine bar. Both woman were perfect in serve and in personality. Wine tasting trio was very reasonable. Humus dip was excellent, as was the artichoke dip as was the meat & cheese plate. The only downside...More
